A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called “leaves”) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time—proof that humans can work magic. —Carl Sagan
Painted Sky Writing Group
The writing group will meet on the second Monday of each month at 5:30 PM at the Art Center in Canyon City. You also have the option to participate virtually. (Writer's group takes breaks during the months of December, June, July and August and does not meet during these months.)
"Writing is typically a solo endeavor, but finding a community of writers that support one another can be a great source of inspiration and encouragement. Whether you’re a published author or want to start crafting your first book, a writing group can offer a supportive environment of like-minded people who share a passion for telling stories."
